Microcement stairs are one of the most successful applications in recent years. Stairs are part of the decoration of sample houses. So much so that in many constructions they try to make the staircase a visible element since it provides a sense of spaciousness.
The method of cladding the stairs has normally been with terrazzo in those older constructions, and in the more modern ones, with marble or ceramic flooring. Nowadays, we are looking for the naturalness in the materials and that give a feeling of spaciousness, other options such as natural stones or some large-format marble pieces are already being sought. The other solution that is usually used today, both in new construction and in renovation, is the use of microcement.
Microcement provides numerous advantages over other materials that have made it the preferred option for many architects. Let’s see what are the main reasons for having microcement stairs.
The possibility of reforming stairs without having to eliminate the current pavement is possibly one of the greatest advantages of microcement. Whether they are stairs made of terrazzo, marble, or any ceramic floor, our ONEROCK is the perfect material to cover it.
The high adhesion power of our microcement will cover any stair material, converting it into a totally new stair in just a few days.
ONEROCK ready-to-use microcement has a high resistance to abrasion and shocks, so the steps will withstand whatever is necessary. Edging profiles can be used, which will help to leave a perfect and homogeneous line on each step.
In addition, the finish could be in L or XL, achieving a different appearance and achieving a non-slip surface.
Another advantage of a microcement ladder is that no joints are needed. In addition to the fact that by not wearing gaskets, we will avoid having dirt on them, the aesthetics will be totally different. This is possibly one of the reasons why decorators are choosing microcement for their renovations.
Microcement stairs acquire the sensation of being a block of stone, or cement (depending on the finish), managing to radically change the environment.
As a fourth reason to convert stairs with microcement is that they can have any color that we want. Thanks to its base made up of selected resins and aggregates, it can be easily pigmented. The stairs can be adapted to the desired environment, being able to match them to the floor of the house.
In addition, the pigments used in Lunik ONEROCK do not de-tone, so we can enjoy many years of a microcement staircase without losing the color of the first day, both indoors and outdoors.
In addition, in the stairs so that the design is perfect, the ideal is to eliminate the overhangs. In new construction it is simple, since the microcement will be applied on the concrete structure. In a renovation, the risers must be filled in before so that the step is more solid. In this way the compact block effect is achieved.
